Sen. Tom Coburn makes a strong case for tort reform, where we can cut costs by 15 percent, he says. That, he explains, will in turn increase access. He urges policies to promote disease prevention, argues that Medicaid has much higher rates of fraud than private plans, and makes the case for tackling lawsuit abuse, which spurs defensive medicine. He says we need to go where the money is. Obama says he’s adopted “all the good ideas” on fraud and abuse. But he hasn’t. He doesn’t back serious, real tort reform.
